As an arena for strenuous activities at home, the kitchen should not only make cooking easier, but also be clean and tidy, so we can invite you to cook every day. For those who do not find it complicated, a minimalist kitchen is the perfect choice, as this interior-style kitchen can be presented with the selection and laying of straight and simple striped furniture without much decoration. In addition, a minimalist kitchen is also suitable for those who have a lot to do and do not have much time to clean.

The first way to get all these benefits is to have a minimalist kitchen design that matches the needs and number of family members. Can we design our own minimalist kitchen design, though we have no background in interior design or architecture? Hopefully our subsequent test can help.

  1. Plan the function of the kitchen
    Before designing a minimalist kitchen design, you should first observe the available land. After we know exactly what size of kitchen area is available, we can imagine what activities are carried out there. Try to imagine if the kitchen had stood. Will we often use it alone or with other family members? Do you want a kitchen that is integrated only with the dining room or the kitchen? What is often done, cooking for yourself and your family or cooking with friends? A person’s cooking activities can also serve as a guide to designing a minimalist kitchen design that suits your needs. Do we prefer to cook practically cooked foods or do we prefer to cook different types of food in one day? Or maybe even cook rarely?
  2. Planning a pipe installation in minimalist home design
    When the house has been purchased in its finished form and renovations are carried out, the drainage and drainage pipes are installed there. However, if the homeowner intends to add a kitchen table, additional piping in the middle of the room is required, which must be installed by disassembling the floor. Setting up a washing machine in the kitchen is also useful in a minimalist kitchen design. However, a plan still needs to be created to regulate the placement. The advice that is generally recommended by kitchen professionals is to place a washing machine not far from the sink, it may be underneath or next to it. This also makes sense, namely that the washing machine and the sink are not too far away to get to water and throw water in the sewer to the sewer. It is also important to determine the location of the vacuum cleaner. This element is indeed less popular among the people of Indonesia, but it is very beneficial as Indonesian cuisine tends to taste and use many sautéed herbs. The vacuum cleaner prevents stirring vapors from spreading to other rooms in the house.
  3. Determine the lighting
    In order to live up to the minimalist concept, the kitchen should be brightly lit in the morning and in the afternoon by daylight. To this end, a minimalist kitchen design should also include a description of where the window or door faces outward and what size they have. If you want to be more effective, glass sliding doors can be an option as the geometric shapes and straight lines are very similar to the minimalist concept. Natural light can illuminate the kitchen until the day is completely dark, as all door parts are made of glass. When designing a minimalist kitchen, we can also determine where the main lights are and where to put the headlights.
  4. Determine the repository in a minimalist kitchen design
    Since the minimalist concept gives as little priority as possible to the outside, the storage space is inevitably very much needed. The kitchen must also have plenty of storage space, as this room can fall apart after cooking or eating. When designing a minimalist kitchen, we can choose where to place the storage, whether the shape is more vertical or horizontal, whether the storage for children is safe, whether the storage space is available in its finished form or if it needs to be ordered first. Currently, the kitchen cabinets generally consist of cabinets and kitchen worktops. In addition to the worktop is usually a refrigerator, which is stored in a large cabinet with oven and other parking spaces.
  5. Determine the color of the topic
    Like people who diet for health or weight loss reasons, minimalism is the diet for architecture and interior
